A Cryptic Kinky Letter – from Federico Campagna to Gianluca Concialdi

18 November 2014

Gianluca Concialdi – Padiglione Pompeiano, series

 

Federico Campagna, author and friend of Gianluca Concialdi, wrote a personal letter to the artist in response to his solo show MOODCLOTH presented by Ermes. The letter is both an acrostic and mesostic text. The acrostic part of the piece reads the title of a treaty on friendship and love, both erotic and mystical, written in the twelfth century by Aelred of Rievaulx. The irregular mesostic part of the piece is composed of a brief latin extract from the beginning of the book by Aelred. The text itself is a list of porn categories provided by tubegalore.com, and the numbers next to each category refer to the number of related videos catalogued and currently available online. According to Campagna, this peculiar and pornographic text fits very well with the spirit of Concialdi’s project. In Campagna’s words:

“I thought I’d send you some crazy thing like this because it seemed like the most accurate way to talk about your work, for how you explained and contextualized it with respect to your personal life. The book of Aelred speaks of a loving friendship lost, of the despair that followed and of the slow recovery. Obviously for Aelred this recovery occurred by means of a mystical faith, whereas you described to me how the sublimated porn in your project served as a means of personal recovery after the end of your relationship. For this reason I decided to enter the title and excerpt from the mystical text by Aelred within an acrostic + mesostic assemblage of porn categories. I used acrostic and mesostic because traditionally they are poetic and ‘magic’ methods, which are presumed to be capable of producing real effects beyond the text – and in this sense the piece is a wish to you on my part for a happy resolution to this past relationship and for a new happiness. May porn accompany you, brother.”

i Anima mea, anima arida, anima sterilis et infructuosa, sitit his suauissimus complui stillicidiis, ut et illi appareat panis ille coelestis, qui angelos pascit, quem paruulus surgit; et sapiat interiori palato meo omne oblectamentum, nec amplius suspirem ad ollas carnis, quas reliqui in Aegypto, ubi exi- gente Pharaone, etiam ablatis paleis, lateres luteos exsoluebam! – Alfredi Rievallensis, Speculum Caritatis, Incipit Liber Qui Inscribitur de Speculo Caritatis, Quod N!ihil dignius quam ut creator a sua ametur creatura; I: 9-15!

La mia anima, anima arida, sterile e infruttuosa, ha sete di essere bagnata da queste dolcissime gocce di pioggia, perché anche lei possa trovare quel pane celeste che nutre gli angeli e che il bimbo succhia, e il mio palato interiore possa gustare ogni piacere, così che io non debba rimpian- gere più le pentole di carne che ho abbandonato in Egitto dove, per la prepotenza del Faraone, p!agavo il mio debito costruendo anche senza la paglia mattoni d’argilla!

My Soul, my arid soul, my sterile fruitless soul, longs to be wetted by these sweetest of raindrops, so that she can find that heavenly bread which nourishes the angels and which is sucked by ba- bies, and so that my inner palate can taste every delight, and that I will no longer have to lament the pots full of meat which I left in Egypt, where, due to the Pharaoh’s highhandedness, I had to pay back my debt by building clay bricks even though without straws.
